A FUN SLOPER OR PARKFLYER.
Strengths: Easy to assemble, parts fit extremely well and can be built as one piece model or with removable wings.Also, parts are supplied for electric power conversion.
Weaknesses: This glider is limited to fairly light weather conditions.
Overall: A value for money semi scale light weather sloper that can be converted to electric power easily for park flying.

GOOD VALUE
Strengths: Simple and quick to build
Weaknesses: Flimsy ailerons, wing tips need reinforcement
Overall: Goes together well, looks good as it represents a 'real' glider, but ailerons are flimsy and may benefit from replacement with balsa. Not particulary good at thermal soaring, but tows easily behind my electric tug , is aerobatic and is probably more at home on the slope.Wingtips are very prone to breaking off as the inner reinforcement stops at the outer end of the ailerons, leaving 50-70mm of very thin unsupported foam. Glassing of wingtips recommended. The applied paint on the canopy is easily removed by tape when joining the fuselage halves- beware.

VERY GOOD
Strengths: Cheap! Doddle to put together. It's made of EPP.
Weaknesses: It's made of EPP.
Overall: So far so good - maidened at Pole Cott today - didn't come down for half an hour. I need another bash to fully qualify my comments, but it flew great, rolls are quite axial, and I enjoyed the experience. A very pleasant surprise.

EXCELLENT
Strengths: Value for money is excellent got it free carriage from HK for less than it's selling in the UK. Easy build/assembly does what it says on the tin, ideal in 10-20 mph winds
Weaknesses: None found so far other than maybe lacking rudder authority
Overall: Love it easy fit in the car fully assemled and as already mentioned superb value for money and excellent service from Windrider in Hong Kong

EXCELLENT 66" SPAN MOULDED EPP FOAM SOARER
Strengths: Semi Scale appearance, Strong, Easy Build, can be arranged for disassembly for transport though will fit into most cars without. You can take it out of the box, plug it together, and it'll look complete in seconds!!! Building is very quick and easy. Easily launched, this superbly agile aerobatic slope soarer rocks in lower wind than you'd expect.........and is pretty stall resistant to boot. Moulded "proper" EPP........very very strong!!!
Weaknesses: Some people may not like the tiny but numerous moulding pips. (as with most moulded foam types).
Overall: The ONLY plane so far I have TWO of!!! (does that say enough about how I rate it???)
